Annenberg Awards and Presentations at the 2014 ICA Conference

Annenberg students, research staff, and faculty had a very visible profile at the 2014 International Communication Association annual conference in Seattle, WA in May.

Top paper awards went to Professor Emily Falk and colleagues, students Douglas Allen, David Conrad, Jasmine Salters, and Kate Zambon, and Researcher Laura Gibson and colleagues. Additionally, student EunGyuhl Rosie Bae and colleagues received an honorable mention for their work.  (Additionally, alumna Keren Tenenboim Weinblatt was honored with the ICA Outstanding Article Award.)  Additionally, graduate student Sandra Ristovska was elected as a graduate student representative for Philosophy, Theory and Critique.

"Not every program is as uniquely positioned to provide the kind of support that the Annenberg School for Communication is able to offer," notes Amy B. Jordan, Ph.D., President-Elect of the International Communication Association, and Adjunct Professor of Communication at Annenberg. "Students are encouraged to submit papers from their coursework and from their research teams, and are mentored through the process of writing, submission, and presentation by their fellow students and faculty. ASC has maintained a deep commitment to the association and one can witness this through the service of the faculty in leadership roles, the financial support of student travel, and much-anticipated Annenberg reception co-hosted each year at the annual meeting."

The following table lists presentations and all activities by Annenberg faculty, students, and researchers. Presentations with multiple authors are organized in the table according to first author. Award recipients are noted.
